I enjoy watching your videos, I'm a UPS driver, and I'm just curious about how strict fed ex is when it comes to delivery methods and driving rules/viewing habits? For example on the methods part...we basically get 45 seconds to deliver a single package residential stop, the telematics starts timing as soon as the engine shuts off and we get 15 seconds to open and shut the bulkhead door (package selection time) then 30 seconds to drop the package and start the engine to head to the next stop. Then as far as viewing habits and driving rules there really is a good bit, too much to type it all out but the basics are 1-Aim high when steering 2-Get the big picture 3-Keep eyes moving 4-Leave yourself an out 5-Make sure they see you. Each of the 5 is broken down into more detail but again, I'm just curious if y'all have similar rules and guidelines

TheAgentEsties (24 days ago)
I’m a package handler, the best , drivers love me, i load clean and all the numbers are in order. Stops are grouped together, the job is easy to me at this point, most package handlers suck in terms of quality lol , I’m debating wether to start driving

Our terminal has a lot of issues. Sometimes I'm not able to dispatch until 10:00 AM. Either our systems are down, manifests wont print, trucks are late and we have slow package handlers who constantly mess up.

FedEx Ground sucks. They don't tell you when they hire you that you are not even a FedEx employee .People will tell you it's awesome because you can own your own route, but you will never get a good route over the OG drivers and contractors already there before you.

Kyle Shackelford (3 months ago)
As a package handler, I had realized that one of my drivers would be angry and re-organize the WHOLE truck when he got there, so instead of wasting both of our time, I started loading to his spec. Now, I can just look at the address and know exactly where the package goes on the truck. If I ever get a package that needs taped, I don't even load it until I get it some help. Some of us do our job well lol......
Sergio Esteireiro (21 days ago)

Kay Jay (4 months ago)
I quit because my manager yelled at me for helping my fellow drivers load their trucks, and then the owner told me to do what the manager said even if he was wrong. The only problem with me helping people load trucks in the morning is because the manager didn't want me to. That was the only reason I was given. He had no other reason for yelling at me. I would even help him and others deliver at the end of my shift. He literally told me the only reason why he didn't want me to help load trucks was because he didn't want me to. That was it. He said there was no issue with me helping others load their trucks it just wasn't what he wanted me to do. I was more upset that the owner took the managers side. His reason was that he hired him as the manager and he put his trust in him, and he told me I was in the wrong for questioning the managers decision. He blamed me for the whole situation and wanted me to admit it was my fault. I told them I was not in the wrong, and I wasn't going to admit fault and didn't want to work for them anymore. So i quit. The other drivers talked me into coming back to work because they couldn't handle the load I left them with, and wanted my help. Because the other drivers needed me, and asked me to come back and help them I did. I called the manager and said if you need the help I will promise not to help others unless asked to do so. The manager said something along the lines of good you see it my way or something like it, which really bothered me, but I went to work again anyways. The owner was mad at me and didn't pay me for some of the work I did, and I was just over it. I couldn't work and not get paid so I left again. I haven't worked for Fedex since.

holladay trucking (5 months ago)
As a Fedex contractor the top 5 reasons I see people leave. In order are . 1 long hours 2 no benefits 3 money 4 pressure 5 weather. If you got anger issues or become overwhelmed easily ? This is not for you. Can’t deal with angry people in a calming professional way ? Not for you. Can’t handle that Your service must meet or exceed Ups for half the money. Not for you.
cameron marshall (5 months ago)
How hard was it to get the drivers position? Did you have to start at the hub? I would like to double my income I hear people bringing in 50k+ I currently work my but off managing a company that could care less for much less.
CThompsonTv (5 months ago)
Do you have experience driving a delivery truck? Most truck are automatic
cameron marshall (5 months ago)
Yea I have a clean record at 23, been driving for over 7 years but never a manual. That would honesty take me a week of practice to master I'm a gear head an have installed a clutch before for a friend but never actually drove one come to think of it lol. I'd rent a truck an practice
CThompsonTv (5 months ago)
Not all that hard. Do you have driving experience?

Is home delivery better than ground .i work ground and thinking in going into home delivery with another contractor .
CThompsonTv (6 months ago)
It really just depends on the route. Home delivery just doesn't have scheduled pick ups like grounds
Kyle Blount (6 months ago)
When I drove for Ground we dispatched at around 8. I drove a p1200 with 70-90 stops and 300ish packages a day, so I understand the frustrations bro.

For the most part they'll stay

I work Fed ex ground in okc we dispatch at 9:30-10a our dispatch time is ridiculous
Jason Fink (7 months ago)
Is dispatch the same as the time we launch from the station?
Jason Fink (7 months ago)
If dispatch is launch time, then we usually are out of station between 7:50am or so or later depending on trucks/flights. Late freight sucks. I am a late start so I start at 7:30am
Y4shiRoku (7 months ago)
12:30 and you got almost half of the truck gone, you the mvp. lol
Taylar James (7 months ago)
Amen brother. I was a Home Delivery guy for about 6 years 3 Years in  Chicago 3 years Seattle and Im still emotionally and mentally recovering. The most stops I had during Christmas was almost 300 stops  we had to load our own trucks, and it was downtown Chicago. Ive never been so stressed in my life. My average stops were from 120 to 150. Definitely under paid and under appreciated.
algierssolja (5 months ago)
Sleep? Who the hell needs sleep. We have work that needs to move. You can sleep when you die....or retire. LOL sleep! That is a good one.
Taylar James (6 months ago)
Because a lot of the deliveries were down town Chicago, so I had a lot of high rise apartments and businesses up to about 60 floors or so and sometimes you could get rid up 20 packages at a time. That would take some of the edge off, but sometimes Id be working from 6am to 9 at night, but yah almost sleeping at the hub.
klazzikk (7 months ago)
Taylar James how is that even possible? did you sleep at the hub?
Mr Harvey Guy (7 months ago)
8:30 is right around the normal range anytime past 9:00 is a little later than normal for packages to be made available. If your van is messy everyday, look in to your vision map. Also follow up with the VL manager. If that doesn’t do it, get with the Sort Manager and or P&D manager
shortymackinem (7 months ago)

+Alfred Hernandez as part time early Am driver at top pay? I routinely made nearly as much as ground drivers. Tuesday through Friday and Saturday air; Saturday is the only day I might have worked a little over, but I was home by noon ez! You have to know the game. I can deliver 1 ground pkg a day and over time kicks in at 4 1/2. Why do you think they are changing air progression this contract? It's the easiest money in the operation.

Take care of their employees?! 😂🤣😂🤣 Bwhahahahahaha
Alex (2 months ago)
algierssolja yea they do but it is also a union, so the people who have been there longer will get the driver position. I would have been there working for crumbs forever if i was wishing and waiting on a driver position. I also heard they have no lives either being a driver is hard to balance family time and work.
algierssolja (2 months ago)
Alex they pay 37hr for drivers. Man up for that money if you bout it bout it.
